"COLOR IS WHAT THESE PICTURES ARE ABOUT. IT IS ALWAYS INVENTIVE AND OFTEN EXTRAORDINARY... they are energetic but carefully balanced configurations of intense colour, with piles of bars like springboards, hurling discs across the canvas."
-KAREN WILKIN, WILLIAM PEREHUDOFF: TEN YEARS (SASKATOON: MENDEL ART GALLERY, 1981)
Rukaj Gallery is thrilled to present an exhibition of works from the William Perehudoff Estate. As one of the key figures in the history of modern Canadian art, Perehudoff's work combines the sunlit expanse of the Canadian Prairies with gestural and geometric abstraction. He was interested in creating visual harmonies using colours, shapes, and textures, remarking that "when you listen to music, you hear it, and when you look at abstract painting, you see it.”
